My husband spends all of his free time at the computer watching shows and playing video games. The only time he isn't at the computer is when he is giving our son a bath.
As soon as he gets home from work he is at the computer up until he goes to bed.

On his days off from when he wakes up till when he goes to bed he is at the computer.
I have to beg him to take our son outside to play just to get a small break. When i need to use the bathroom and i ask him to keep an eye on our son who is two i come back and he is still at that damn computer.

I'm the one taking care of our son, cleaning and cooking..
After our son goes to bed i would love to spend time with him but he is checked out, though he claims he is happy. I have talked to him about this already and even his family has noticed and said something to him.

I'm not sure what else to do.
What is with guys and their obsessions woth computers?

Speak to him again make him understand you need his time too. My hubby used to be the same he didnt listen for years. Let him know how you feel write it down so you can get everything out maybe leave him a letter by the pc.

Mknight, I didn't do it But my wife did and still does. I joke about getting a keyboard tatooed on my body. But deep inside was serious I was so desperate. I sorry that I have no words of wisdom. However your not alone and praying for your situation and others like ours.
